Police said:

‘The fatal four are the most common causes of road accidents and yet, very easy to avoid. Stay within the speed limit, don’t use your mobile phone, always wear a seat belt and never drive if you plan to drink alcohol.

‘Drivers are encouraged to remember that any consumption of alcohol or drugs has an impact on your driving and is detrimental to your awareness and ability to react – even if only taken in small quantities.’
